Normally the study of project management focuses on managing a single project. In reality, most project managers and practitioners are involved with multiple projects in today’s business environment. Most available material on managing programs of multiple projects focuses on time management and priority setting. These are vital skills; however, they are not the only skills needed to effectively manage multiple projects. There are strategies for multiple projects that go beyond time management and priority setting. These strategies entail adapting normal single-project management skills to the multiple-project or program environment. This two-day course will identify and explore these strategies and provide tools, techniques, and methodologies to effectively deal with and manage multiple projects.
